Welcome back to a new school year. I look forward to providing you with lots of great resources over the coming year. I know it is going to be a great year with the DEN. I wanted to let you know about some additions to the VA DEN Blog. We’ve added some new pages that will give you access to some additional resources.
VA DEN Calendar: Check here for workshops, webinars and professional development opportunities. If you have an event that is happening please feel free to add it to our calendar.
DEN Diigo Group: Diigo is the newest social bookmarking site. DEN has created a group so you can have access to resources from other STAR DEN members. This group is open to all so please sign up and start sharing.
Web 2.0 Wednesday: We all know the power or Web 2.0. Every Wednesday I will post a new Web 2.0 tool that you can use in your classroom.
I hope you’ll enjoy these new additions to the blog and if you have any suggestions please let us know. Below is some new information that was recently posted to the National Blog.
